    were - would be

    Hello guys,
    I always forget this one:
    s' were correct if the sentence would be:
    (I wrote that sentence some minutes ago.)

    Is it okay or should I say:
    s' would be correct if the sentence were:

    I could also say:
    X were correct if the sentence would be:
    X would be correct if the sentence were:


    Cheers!
